Also if you went over the same bridge more than once it would become weaker etc. There were dangers, like traps with spiders etc. I even went to the extent of making cut scenes when you were getting eaten or falling through. I think there was even some very simple beep music in it lol. This game died with the tape I saved it on. The end.
Nice...my first games were written in Q-Basic and were text-based too (or had very poor graphics - mostly blinking dots and colored shapes)...I have used The Games Factory 2 quite extensively to produce quality video games of all types, and I intend to learn to write flash when I have time...
